A few random scenes here.. The first shot is a number of cops getting a mug of a few wanted criminals, Fun shot!

After that, it's a labor rally (I guess).. Tom Mooney is the man! I was mystified about those spotlights though. Its like they were still looking for those criminals..

Next is a boat trip to Alcatraz.. No, we don't get to go on the island, just relatively close to it. Not bad, but still, you're on the boat.
